Thank you for bringing back so many fun memories with your website! -Mary Jamieson"


Chloe sent us another version of this song:

When Sammy put the paper on the wall,
He put the parlor paper down the hall.
He papered up the stairs,
He papered all the chairs,
He even put a border on Grandma's shawl!
When Sammy put the paper on the wall,
He poured a pot of paste upon us all
Now we're all stuck together like birds of a feather
Since Sammy put the paper on the wall.


Pearl said she sang this song in elementary school in the 70's.
